The door was always open at their home and everyone was welcome. She also was a teacher's aide at Jansen Elementary for ten years. Sally was a wonderful wife, mom, grandma and friend.

    Sally was preceded in death by her husband John, her son Johnny, her sisters Geneva Konz, Rita Allen, Marian Schweda and Pat Pavolich.

    In keeping with Sally's wishes, the celebration of her life was a private service for her family. Online condolences may be expressed at www.wichmannfargo.com.
